Thank you 😊 Day 3

Welcome!

Today’s Thank You card was made using my Cricut machine. If you own a Cricut, what do you think of your machine? Mine can be temperamental at times. Sometimes it will cut perfectly, but other times I can’t seem to cut anything but a straight line.

Today, I didn’t have any issues. I used two very pretty yellow cardstock sheets to make this gem. Before I made the first cut, I resized the card in Design Space down to an A2 size card.

The yellow hue makes this card extra cheery!

Until tomorrow…

Thank You 😊 Day 2

Welcome!

Do you like 3×3 cards? I’m a bit obsessed with them. I’m not sure why, but every chance I have, I make a few. Today is no exception!

Today’s card would be a perfect thank you card for a baby shower gift. My daughter’s friend just found out she is pregnant with a little girl, so I plan on making up a set for her as a surprise!

Hope you are having a great week!

Until tomorrow…

Thank you 😊 Day 1

Welcome!

Today I would like to share with you a new theme in handcrafted cards. This week I will focus on thank you cards.

I found a similar design on Pinterest. I used an old heart punch and created balloons, held with twine and a satin bow. I stamped the card front with a sentiment and then embossed it for more interest. Finally, I attached the card front to an A2 size card base.

This card could be used for many different occasions. Just simply trade out the sentiment to match your special day.

Until tomorrow….

Thinking of You 🤔 Day 7

Welcome!

Today I would like to share with you the final handcrafted card in this week’s series. I let my beautiful paper pack do the work for this special card.

I simply cut a piece of floral paper down to 3”X5.5” and then used dark blue paper as the mat. I adhered the piece to an A2 size card base made from yellow cardstock. I finished it off with a simple sentiment.

I hope you enjoyed this week’s Thinking of You collection.

Until tomorrow…

Thinking of You 🤔 Day 6

Welcome!

Today, I have another Pinterest inspired handcrafted card. My hubby had to help me with this card. I’m not very good at centering my paper pieces, so I had to call in for some help!

I ended up making this card in a few different colors. It was fun! I hope you like it.

Until tomorrow…

Thinking of You 🤔 Day 5

Welcome and happy Friday!

Today’s card was inspired by YouTuber, Stacy Williams. I followed along with her video:

This is definitely a card I’m going to mass produce! Do you prefer to take your time on one special card, or do you like to mass produce your creations? I like mass producing. After 20 or so times, I usually get it just the way I want it 😀

Until tomorrow…

Thinking of You 🤔 Day 4

Welcome!

It’s still awfully cold in these parts, but it did warm up to -9 today! So much better than -31! I get off track pretty easily!

Yesterday I shared a handcrafted card that was full of ”oops” moments, so I decided to try it again. Today’s card turned out perfectly!

Life can be full of frustrations and for me, I can get pretty down on myself. It is so important not to do that, but to take those frustrations and turn them into opportunities. I would love to share my latest, ”opportunity” with you.

Until tomorrow…

Thinking of You 🤔 Day 3

Welcome!

First, I would like to share with you the temperature outside as I write this is -31 with windchill! I’m very happy to be inside!

Anyway, back to business. The handcrafted card I am sharing with you today was not the card I set out to make. It is filled with ”oops” moments. Let me explain.

First, the top embossed piece was supposed to come down to a little over half of the card front. I got chop happy and cut it too short. Well, I tried to balance it out by using washi tape. However, the first application was crooked. When I pulled the tape up, I tore the card! Instead of just tossing it altogether, I saved the card by using a larger piece of washi and covered the tear.

I think it turned out pretty good, but tomorrow I will go back to the drawing board.

Until tomorrow…

Thinking of You 🤔 Day 2

Welcome!

Today, I have three variations of a Pinterest inspired handcrafted card. I love when I find something on Pinterest and I am able to use items I already have in my stash.

I cut two, 4”x2.5” pieces of white cardstock and then used a border punch along the 4” side. I embossed each piece using my Cuddlebug. I adhered both pieces onto colored cardstock, measuring 4”x5.25”. I then used coordinating flower embellishments, along with a, Thinking of you sentiment stamp. Finally, I adhered the completed card front to an A2 size card base.

Stay tuned for more Pinterest inspired treasures.

Until tomorrow…

Thinking of You 🤔 Day 1

Welcome!

Today, I start all over with a new theme of handcrafted cards. This week’s theme is, Thinking of You.

This card was very simple to create. For the card front, I cut a piece or white cardstock down to 4”x5.25”. I embossed it using my Cuddlebug and adhered it to an A2 size card base. I embellished the front, using butterflies made using my EK Tools’ butterfly punch as well as a prayer sentiment from my Hero Arts stamp and cut prayer set.

I hope you enjoy this weeks’ handcrafted cards!

Until tomorrow…
